Chablis, Pinson

Chablis,  Pinson

Ref: A014216

Chablis, made from 100% Chardonnay from the northern most part of Burgundy, produces some of the most remarkably clean, minerally, soil driven wines Chardonnay in the world. This exciting wine, from one of Chablis’ top wineries, is an excellent example of Chablis goodness: bright, vibrant, pure, refreshing, aromatic, loaded with goût de pierre à fusil (gunflint taste), and perfectly balanced between ripe fruit and lemony, green apple, acidity.

Established in the early 17th Century, this 10 hectare estate is one of the most ‘senior’ estates in Chablis, both in terms of its reputation and the sheer quality of its wines.

The Pinson brothers’ grandfather, Louis, established the estate’s pedigree in the late 1940’s and became one of the first growers to bottle and sell their own wine. This exemplary family estate is now run by Laurent (who is in charge of wine-making and the cellars) and his brother, Christophe (who is in control of all vineyard and viticultural work).

The vineyards are sensibly replanted, giving an average age of vines a little over 30 years old, whilst tight pruning ensures carefully maintained yields. All the grapes are manually picked and vinification is traditional, with the initial fermentation of all the wines taking place in stainless steel vats and then the Premiers and Grands Crus are transferred to a range of new, and not so new, oak barrels for ageing. This process allows the wines to have a wonderful purity and intensity of fruit (they are not dominated by oak which comes from barrel-fermented Chablis) and a richness which is so often lacking in the wines from this region.
